A Guide To Garage Floor Coatings

If you are unfamiliar with what you should expect in terms of costs, installation speed, or how the coatings are installed?

garage floor epoxy

Garage Floor Epoxy

Garage epoxies are installed in a 3 step process, repair, grinding and application. Specialized grinders are used to expose the pores of the concrete slab, allowing for the epoxy to bond tightly to the slab. In terms of installation speed, the average 2 car garage will take up to 3-4 days to complete. You can expect to pay 3-12 dollars a square foot depending on the condition of the concrete, the epoxy used and the size of the garage.

Rustic Wood Concrete

Just like epoxy flooring, before we apply the stamped overlay, we have to thoroughly clean the surface, repair any cracks and profile the concrete to promote a strong bond. Our team can install a rustic wood concrete system in 2-3 days depending on the size and weather conditions but count on the system taking 24 hours to cure. In terms of pricing on our rustic wood-concrete, you can expect to pay around 8-20 dollars a square foot.

Metallic Epoxy Flooring

The metallic epoxy flooring installation process is similar to standard epoxy but the main difference is that there is a primer coat and a top coat that are used to make the decorative finish reach its full effect. Depending on the weather, this 2 coat system can take 3-5 days to install with a cure time up to 72 hours. Depending on the complexity of the finish desired and the condition of the concrete, expect to pay up to 15 dollars a square foot.

Sealed Concrete

The process of installing sealers includes the removal of dirt, grease and other contamination followed by the removal of any sealer on the concrete that remains. After the surface is clean, the first coat of sealer is applied and allowed to dry before a second coat is applied in the opposite direction. This means that a sealer is one of the fastest installed coatings with installation times taking only 2-5 hours with a cure time of 24 hours. Sealers are also affordable with the pricing of 1$-8$ a square foot depending on the sealer used.

Rubber Floor Coatings

When rubberized flooring is used on concrete, the only preparation that needs to be made besides the repair of cracks or other imperfections is the profiling of the concrete. For rubber flooring, acid etches are the most common form. Just like a sealer, 2 coats of rubberized coating are required in a criss-cross application pattern and must cure for 24 hours before they are ready for use. Typical installation times are 1-2 days and can cost around 9-15 dollars a square foot to install in an average 2 car garage.

Choosing The Right Coating

To Suit Your Needs

Choosing the right garage floor coating for your needs is the most crucial step of the planning process. Depending on what your budget is, what you will be using your garage floor and the condition of your concrete slab play a major role in what coating you should choose. For example, if you are going to be using your garage for auto reconstruction or heavy machining, epoxy flooring might be your best bet with superior damage/chemical protection, anti-abrasion, and a carefree maintenance protocol.
But if you only use your garage to park your car or for storage, any of the budget-friendly options will do like sealed concrete or rubber floor coatings if you are worried about oil leaks. But our rustic wood concrete is a suitable option if your concrete needs additional protection, if you want to extend the coating down your driveway or if you just love wood flooring!

Maintaining Your Coating

Day to Day and Then Some

Maintaining-Your-Coating

When it comes to maintaining your garage coating, most materials use the same maintenance protocol that is both simplistic and fast. For example, our epoxies and rubber floor coatings offer a simplistic cleaning method of using a standard wet mop, dust mop and a PH neutral cleaner to remove any deep stains that mopping alone can’t remove. 

For our sealers and stamped concrete, the brooming and mopping still apply but coatings that use sealers will need to be replaced every 1-3 years depending on what the coating is used for, UV exposure and the traffic the coating endures. Waxes can also be used on sealers to preserve the coating, increasing its lifespan.

A Guide To Concrete Resurfacing

Assessing Your Concrete

A-Guide-To-Concrete-Resurfacing

When your concrete begins to show its age with cracks, weathering or discoloration, the best option isn’t always to replace the entire slab. With winter right around the corner, it’s time to start assessing the condition of your concrete before you make any rash decisions. Your concrete slab will be able to be resurfaced if the concrete is still in good structural standing, not missing large chunks or if it is subject to major sinking or lifting.

But if your concrete is affected by normal damage like cracks, gouges or weathered to the point of exposed aggregate, it can be saved with resurfacing and coated with one of the coatings above to increase its resilience.
